"There are three types of people in the world: those who can count, and those who can't."

The comedy line above says a lot about most of today's social and economic questions. Almost all experts interested in the human condition talk about the economy in two terms, Labor and Capital.

The Commons. The Commons is the key to alleviating poverty, purging corporations of their undue power, nourishing democratic values and institutions, and vaulting environmental protection into the people's purview.
